Fast, efficient flat roof edge protection
18 July 2013
Height safety specialist Combisafe has launched a counterweight system to provide freestanding, ergonomic and secure temporary edge protection for flat roof applications.
The innovation, which meets the specifications of the European standard for temporary edge protection systems EN 13374, requires just a hammer for its assembly and uses a trolley to provide a quicker, more ergonomic installation which removes the need for heavy lifting.
Stability to the guardrails is provided by a simple lever arm which can be installed either at deck level or elevated. The lever arm can also be adjusted while the weights are still in place using the ergonomic trolley, or detached and swung alongside the guardrail, to provide simple and efficient access to the roof surface.
